Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Gap (Palo Alto, CA) in March 2014.

Interview

Applied and within a few days a got a call for an interview, it went smoothly. Then a few days after that I had a second interview, and that went very well and within a week I got the call saying I got the job. Both of the managers that gave me my interview are no longer with the company but they were very friendly, and now we have an even managing team that are just as friendly and even better at getting more people organized.

    Interview

    Fairly easy interview, looked at resume and asked questions regarding previous experiences. Then went on to explain job duties and what to expect. The interview lasted around 10 to 15 minutes but it felt even shorter.

    Interview

    Very Basic and interviewer did not ask a large amount of questions. Was asked why I wanted to work at the Gap. Asked about scheduling conflicts and hours available. Very laid back interview. Offered the position and was told a background check would be needed. Overall a very simple process to get hired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Gap (Arcadia, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online to Baby Gap/ Gap Kids in Arcadia, CA, around late October and received a call 2 weeks after for a group interview. The hiring manager basically told us this was going to be the easiest and quickest interview ever and said that we are all already hired for the holiday season. The pay is $9.25. It was a group of 6 including myself. We were selected based on our survey/behavioral test that was part of the online application. Orientation was that same week for 2 hours filling out paper work and watching two discs of company policy, loss prevention, etc. We also toured the store and were given our employee IDs. The Gap card is important for commission and must be informed to every customer as a cashier or as a sales associate helping with fitting rooms etc. Waiting for my first official day!

    Dress code is no sandals, no logos, no crop tops, and no hoodies. Jewelry, sneakers, and practically anything is allowed as long as it's appropriate for the season.

    Good luck!

    Interview

    Submit job application online. Do not bother asking for an application in store...they'll just give you a little card that tells you to apply online. The online application is followed by an online test which tests your organizational skills and workplace ethics. If you meet their needs, they call you for a group interview. If you pass that, they call you for a one on one.

    Interview Questions

    • Group interview: Tell me about a particular time where you demonstrated leadership skills.
      One on one: Sell me something....which can be whatever is that you have on you such as articles of clothing, wallet, purse, etc.
